Big Waves

Hello friends! I know I have been AWOL for a while. A lot has been going on. I have been reading your blogs and trying to keep up with all of you. I hope everyone is having a great start to the new year. We had a white Christmas here in the Ouachitas. It started snowing Christmas day and continued into the night. We ended up with close to seven inches. There is still some out there in places. We are supposed to get rain tonight or tomorrow, so I figure that will wash away all that is left.

With the weather keeping the ground wet (which we need!), we don't have as many pecan trees in the ground as we would like. We are still working on having the land cleared and, hopefully, some ponds will be put in soon.

I've been trying to find some lighting ideas for my kitchen and found this idea on facebook. I'm not sure it will work for me, but I like it!

Have a great day!


  1. Love that lighting idea with the graters, just too cute.

  2. I like that light, too. Neat idea!

  3. Welcome back and thanks so much for visiting my blog!! We had snow here in New York on Christmas Eve. It was so pretty to see. Now it's warm for this time of the year so we'll be seeing rain for the next day or two. Happy New Year to you and your family!! : )

  5. Hi Rm,
    How nice to hear from you. That lighting idea is pretty interesting,are you going to do it?
    We had about two feet of snow here a few weeks ago, now its all green out and has been in the 50's the last few days. Turning colder again this week.
